6:18am
so. >> jerry phillips and dave mcconnell, the city only one had licensed dealer and he lost his lease. >> he lost his lease and a building in southeast. this means any resident kblt boo a gun in any other state and come across district lines. that's a federal law. so there is no way a person can purchase a gun in the district. people are not too happy about hearing you're going to have a better or stronger access to guns. in columbia heights we had four shootings in the neighborhood last week. >> gun supporters would say that -- what you said has very little to do with guns. people who wash to kill people get them some other way.
6:19am

6:21am
>> city officials say all they want firefighters to do is pick up the phone and call. >> this is the dumbest answer i have ever hard. they are unharmed people. if they were smart they would go back to orange hats. this is where you organize them? have we forgotten about the orange hats. these are the people who know the individuals in the country. i'm a child of the 60s. i remember when the roy on the happeneding you had to call out the national guard to protect the firefighters. >> i conferred the riots. i was just starting out a fire. >> same thing here. if you can't keep having
6:22am
firefighters doing things they're not supposed to be doing, that can be a strain. if you see a crime occurring and would you not want to call the city and report it to the polices in what would be wrong with that? >> again, organize, organize the community. this is how you stop crime in the county. >> it is to listen to the community. they're the ones that say we need more police action not fire department. >> d.c. council chair kwame mood. some call it a power play. he stripped tommy wells of his assignment on the metro boardment he believes it many strictly political revenge, says
6:23am

6:24am
as you said in the very beginning. that is to do it the way he wanteded to it. now, there is some discrepancies by he bunt epbt getting rid of tom cancer watts. but he's got his alley. he's put her in strong positions. mary shea is not a bad person to put in that positioning. >> this is politics where you reward your friends. this is an interesting thing. council chairs are elected in d.c. others are appointed by your colleagues. so if you started me for chair and you're in a certain ward do you think i want to reward my political enemy? i'm not going to do it. >> i'm sorry. if he's to go this to make a better city, that's one
6:25am
argument. but if we don't become a better city. >> so time will tell. >> yeah, whether this is a good move. but i really with my colleagues here, with dave. you can't say he did a great job and then removing him from the great job he was doing. >> we've got to take a break. when we come

7:23am
and platform whether through the conference or the leaders, people have made great achievements. folks have made contributions in leadership, across international lines and also folks who made contributions at the community level. for us it's important to keep showcasing all those individuals who made wonderful contributions. that's going to be really important for our young people to know that they can accomplish so much and put those role models out there for them. >> before we let you go, we touched on numbers, the strength of numbers in the growing community. are you seeing people taking it the next step further and say i want to run for office? >> yes. . i think one of the things that is so reaffirming for us. as we provide more of the
7:24am
leadership training at the local level, as we inform our community about what they can do at city engagement, whether it's naturalizing and many abouting a citizen, or citizen, that they need to be educated as a voter and go on to play a key role in running for election purchase and it doesn't have to be for congress. it can be the local school board or pta. we are aoeg more and more of our community take that step and take our leadership roles and run for office. neat going to be very, very important. the more you can see diversity i think that reflects ultimately the polls that are considered, the laws passed and the decisions made. and i think that can only be good. you want your leadership and
7:25am
people in offices to aoe what the it will look like. and i think it's really at the core of the mission. >> what a wonderful way to end it. >> thank you so much. it's been a pleasure. >> thank you so much. >> busy summer. >> we're busy all the time. we would love to come by. >> thank smuch. great to see you. again, we will put up the phone number and web address 23u8 like to take part. it's the annual nclr conference. 202-776-1718. back to news 4 today. enjoy the rest of your weekend,
